    Normally when you press the power button at the top of your iOS device and hold it for a few seconds, you will get a "Slide to Power Down" option. Unfortunately, for those of us that are jailbroken, completely shutting off the device is inconvenient, and we could definitely use features for entering Safe Mode or respringing.

    That's the idea behind a new jailbreak tweak called PowerDown Pro by iOS developer Evan Swick.

    PowerDown Pro will give you the option to ...

    One thing about iOS that can sometimes be really annoying is how the ringer volume and media volume are separate. Sometimes, when you think you've turned the volume down, you've only reduced the ringer volume, and when media begins playing it's full blast.

    This new Notification Center widget called Volume Mixer by iOS developer VladMax Soft is now available in Cydia and allows you to adjust different forms of volume separately, all from one place. The widget actually goes far beyond just the ringer volume and the media volume, ...

    Right after installing ProWidgets, ...
